that is why it's so us is not. that is why it's so matters. the government is angry or a categorical lie already. they have. shall we deal with the statement from downing street? this isa statement from downing street? this is a categorical lie, the time—limited period should be determined by the length of time it ta kes to determined by the length of time it takes to put in place new arrangements, and we believe it should be around two years. the telegraph is ranked a front—page article suggesting british officials are in discussions with brussels. they are in. business wouldn't like it to go on any longer, would they? certainty is what is being looked for, currency is what is being looked for. we can only see an extended transition period injecting more uncertainty into the process. i think they're probably have been some discussions along these lines, whether it's as formal as is said here, because of the practical issues, it is a very practical process that needs to be gone through. shouldn't there be contingency plans and pays? nothing has worked out how anybody expected,
10:46 pm
it isa has worked out how anybody expected, it is a good idea to think about all eventualities, isn't it? government oi’ eventualities, isn't it? government orfor business? eventualities, isn't it? government or for business? certainly businesses are thinking about all eventualities and lots of contingency plans are in place, but as we heard from the chief executive of goldman sachs this week, those contingency plans are being activated because i can't wait any longer. matt says, somebody is having a drink, a tipple, opening a bottle of wine, and the legend is, "we are doing dryjanuary after a 30 day transition period." the daily express, brexit boom is here. how big is this boom? well, it was 1% issue at the end of 2017, stretching ita issue at the end of 2017, stretching it a little to describe it as a boom. the growth figures for the entire year of 2017 were lower than 2016, and the lowest we have seen since the d12. it is hard to extrapolate from that that we are
10:47 pm
seeing a boom. where the country is growing, it is largely on the back of global growth where we are seeing that filter through into the british economy, rather than anything in particular that has happened in relation to brexit. the project fear was supposed, we were told, we were going to be plunged into a recession, and it was, the economy, it was good to be in a bad way. even those that have been negative about the impact of brexit, it is not quite that bad. some bits of project fear have already come true in terms of seeing a slowdown in growth, we are seeing the pound fall in value, and we are starting to see businesses move offshore. the doomsday scenarios were 42034, after brexit had happened. brexit hasn't
10:48 pm
happened, so we should hold judgment here. they were long—term predictions, ratherthan here. they were long—term predictions, rather than short—term, and they may well come true. we haven't yet left the european union and we don't yet have the settlement, so it has not happened. the guardian, though, is looking towards a second referendum, because there is a surge in support for it. who has got the stomach for this? laughter britain favours a vote on brexit by a16 britain favours a vote on brexit by a 16 point margin but only when we know the final terms of departure. then what do we do if we say we don't like the terms? then what happens? i don't suppose they have looked into that, have they, but... we had a poll in a similar area last week, which had a slight majority
10:49 pm
for not wanting a second referendum. we asked a slightly different question. what we then found was, if there were a second referendum, the majority of people would vote to remain. nobody wants an election, because we are tired of elections, but i think we are starting to see, and we always have caveats with polls, we have had a run of polls re ce ntly polls, we have had a run of polls recently showing a bias for another referendum. it is stalled very split. very marginal. what we are seeing is the entrenched views amongst age and the people that voted leave, the older people, the over 65
10:50 pm
voted leave, the older people, the over65 is, voted leave, the older people, the over 65 is, they are just as strongly in favour of voting to leave. for younger people, as the guardian poll bears out, as our poll there is, they are fanatically wanting to remain. it is a fanatical divide. the guardian shows the midlands, particularly east midlands, particularly east midlands, very, very strongly still for brexit. but you go to bristol, classic metropolitan area, slightly higher educated, very, very strongly for remain. talking trash about the east midlands, we won't stand for it! there are lovely people from lee smith and! self praise is no recommendation. let's look at the daily mail. now you have to be in agony to have a hip operation. the article says it all comes down to cost in the end. the nhs is having
10:51 pm
to try to delay operations because it doesn't have the funding to go through with them. therefore it is making sure that people really, really are in agony before they go for their operation and insisting on weight loss, insisting on stopping smoking, those kinds of measures. in themselves, they good things for general health, but aren't medically releva nt to general health, but aren't medically relevant to having a hip operation, so agaln, relevant to having a hip operation, so again, it is another symptom of that general nhs challenge around finding the resources to meet the medical needs of the population. £9,000 for the average hip replacement. that would make sense. by replacement. that would make sense. by problem here is that we have right wing papers complaining for years the lower taxes, vilifying governments raise taxes to pay for health care, and turn around and go this is terrible, they can't have it
10:52 pm
both ways. politicians find it difficult to sell the case for higher taxes. there is definitely a shift on this one. people are starting to wake up now. they want public services they desire, whether it is education or a better health service, they have to pay for it somehow. there is also a message in here about the wider health care issue, social care, preventative health care, which puts you in a position where you might not need a hip operation, and thejoining up of those budgets. social care in particular, it has been cut by 6 billion in the last six years. no wonder hospitals are struggling. the ft. wonder hospitals are struggling. the ft, rift taisho ‘s uk china golden hero. this is the belton road
10:53 pm
initiative. it is essentially a really big the ancient silk route china's plans for china businesses involving billions and billions of dollars of investment throughout asia, africa, into europe. we have done a lot of research around the opportunities that this presents, and it presents a lot of opportunities for british business in many countries across emerging economies. that, essentially, is where the future growth will come from and we are talking about a protest brexit well, it is where trading is going to happen. theresa may will visit china. china is hoping for a formal endorsement. what i don't understand is why we are reluctant to endorse this given
10:54 pm
we are meant to be a free trading wonderful britain post—brexit. pictographic, the prime minister's former disaster after the decision to call the election, itjust seems weird that britain would not want to support this. we will see what diplomatic language gets used when she is there. this time last year, president xi was talking about free trade, we welcome that very much. it is in contrast to the speech today from trump in terms of global versus protectionism. it is part of that free trade initiative. let's finish with a bit of navel—gazing. bbc male presenters take cut in pay. john humphrys is one of six highly paid male presenters who have done the
10:55 pm
decent thing, supposedly, for which the bbc says it is grateful. we should be, should we, very no—ball. men self—sacrificing in this way to help the good cause of gender pay equality. i wonder how effective it will be in resolving the wider issues amongst 19,000 people. this issues amongst 19,000 people. this is an interesting story, which essentially is why we are talking about it. but the bigger issue on equal pay and gender pay reporting are the systemic issues that exist within organisations. we will see more around these issues in the next couple of weeks. you are right. my company, i know, we have to reveal this. the bbc is the first one to do it, and therefore we are talking about it. but it is a weird way to handle it, saying they grateful,
10:56 pm
maybe expressing attitude to the women that have been underpaid for many years and do a wonderfuljob. thank you for your comments. i don't have a view. that's it for the papers for tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you, seven days a week at and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you to jason and helen. they have both been paid the same for appearing hits a night. now, the weather. hello, good evening. it's been a chilly day today, and there's actually been a touch of frost across eastern areas right now. but there is mild air on the way, and it comes in from the atlantic, and it comes in with all this cloud.
10:57 pm
the cloud has been bringing some rain, but the heavy or persistent rain comes on the thicker cloud pushing on strengthening winds in from the atlantic. you can see how it turns wetter across northern ireland, and eventually rain later on in the night moves across the irish sea. the wind picks up here but picks up more slowly across eastern areas, particularly eastern england. here, it will be cold. for a while, there will be mist and fog patches, too. but that should tend to lift as the wind picks up, you can see how the wind quickly blows the rain eastwards across scotland into the morning. this is nine o'clock, heavy bursts of rain and strong winds, too. by this stage, the worst of the rain has cleared away from northern ireland. still some heavy bursts of rain, perhaps, across the hills in the north—west of england, but through much of eastern england, still dry and hazy sunshine, a bit of a chilly start across east anglia and the south—east. the milder weather is with the rain that we've got here across wales and south—west england. the rain pushes south—eastwards from the day. and in the afternoon, the rain becomes light and patchy, keeping a lot of cloud across much of england and wales.
10:58 pm
scotland and northern ireland more likely to get sunshine and some showers will be quite windy, gales developing in the north—west in particular. but it is the atlantic air coming in, even with a lot of cloud, temperatures will be higher than they were today. around the base of this low—pressure, severe gales overnight across the far north of scotland. those will ease by sunday morning, and we will see the weather front returning, bringing rain and drizzle across scotland, many other parts of the uk may well be dry. as you can see, a lot of cloud. still, a brisk west south—westerly wind. it's going to be very mild, temperatures could be high on sunday. and where we see some breaks in the cloud, to the east of high ground, perhaps north—east wales, cheshire, temperatures hitting 15 degrees. a bit cooler in the far north of scotland to the north of the rain. that rain move southwards on monday, and some of the rain could be a little on the heavy side as it pushes through england and wales. ahead of it, strong and gusty winds, the rain reaches southern england later on in the day, where there are higher temperatures. further north, despite some sunshine, it will be a little bit cooler.
10:59 pm
goodbye. this is bbc news. the headlines at 11. canadian company bombardier has won it's legal dispute with the us government, which was threatening to put punitive tariffs on its aircraft parts. it's america first for trade, donald trump tells global finance leaders, but the us is still open for business. charting a new course — the brexit secretary outlines his vision for the years immediately after britain's departure from the eu. and on newsnight, one of the many women raped by black cab driver john worboys talks to us, at length, about her ordeal and her determination to keep him in prison.
